Jared Leto Speaks on Vegas Tragedy: Nothing Can Defeat the Human Spirit

Jared Leto, frontman of Thirty Seconds to Mars and Hollywood actor, apparently hasn't seen Suicide Squad, the film in which he played a pretty important role in. "I would've pretended - I would've acted", the actor says before laughing.

Leto would put the lenses on before even getting to set, meaning he never laid eyes on any of his costars - including Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford. Because he's very intense.

Jared Leto turned to a blind friend to help him flawless his sightless villain in the new Blade Runner movie.

The 45-year-old actor has revealed he wore contact lenses to make him temporarily blind whilst filming "Blade Runner 2049" because his character Niander Wallace has lost his sight, and he has admitted he only carries out extreme measures because he doesn't think he could give an honest and convincing portrayal otherwise.

Not being able to see was a bonus for Leto - because it helped calm his nerves when he was around co-star Harrison Ford. "One basic response I have is, 'I'll work the way I wanna work, you work the way you want to work". "He had a little pizza on his shirt".

He said: "I should just never talk about it because I'm not doing it to talk about it - I'm doing it for me".

Leto also opened up about the "horrific" and "heartbreaking" Las Vegas shooting, which left 59 people dead and over 500 others injured this past Sunday. "We need to continue to live our lives, to follow our dreams and to keep moving forward", he said of his determination to solider on following the worst mass shooting in modern USA history. In 2015, gunmen stormed an Eagles of Death Metal concert at the Bataclan in Paris, killing 89 people.

"It's just heartbreaking and senseless, and you know, I hope that if there's anything that comes from this, it's that we all get a little closer", he continued.
